Thrift Store Thursday—8/20

I apologize for the quality of my photos…I often forget to take pictures during the day when I can use the natural light, and end up having to use the flash. That’s not flattering for anybody (or anything)!

So, just a few little things this week:

The candle holder was about 70 cents (it appears warped in this photo, but isn't really), the cute little birds were 85 cents each, and the dominoes were 90 cents (I already had the jar). They all came from United Volunteers.

This isn’t thrift store, but I wanted to alert you to these birdie tea light holders that I found at Dollar Tree this week.

Also, I am in no way ready for fall, but fall decor is out now. Remembering last year, when I couldn’t find the little ceramic pumpkins that everybody had, I went ahead and picked them up when I saw them. The left and middle ones are from Dollar Tree, and the one on the right is from Walgreens (99 cents). Get 'em while you can.

I hope you will forgive my partial detour from thrift stores in the strictest sense, but dollar store fare isn’t too far afield, I guess.

I’m trying MckLinky this week; hopefully he’ll be more cooperative than the other one. Please join the party and show us your thrifty finds.

1. Please link directly to your Thrift Store Thursday post, not your home page.

2. Please mention and link back to my Thrift Store Thursday post.

3. Please put my button in your post, and I'd really love it if you'd use the code to do so :)

Love it all. Especially the pumpkins and the candle holder. I'll have to head to the dollar store to see if I can find any nice new fall decor. I can't wait to bring out all my decorations. I will wait until September.

I saw those birds at Dollar Tree the other day. I didn't buy any though. I already had some of the pumpkins from last year. I did buy some mini pumpkins and gourds to fill up my jars with though. :)
